The Y is currently accepting applications for our All-day Preschool.

Why the Y for Preschool?

At the Beatrice YMCA Preschool, we believe that children are strong, capable learners who learn best through social and environmental interactions. That’s why we strive to provide opportunities for children to learn through play, both individually and in groups. Our hope is that our preschool will feel like home to you and your child, filled with nurturing love and care. Our fees include care Monday through Friday from 6:30 am – 6:00 pm, preschool curriculum from 8:45 am – 3 pm, breakfast, lunch, and 2 nutritious snacks every day.

AND… Our program also includes weekly swim lessons, gymnastics classes, Spanish lessons, and sign language – ALL INCLUDED IN THE COST!

We also offer care for children who are attending half-day preschool with the BPS preschool. Options:

  1. Mornings only and all day Wednesday $105/week.
  2. Afternoons only and all day Wednesday $105/week.
  3. All day Wednesday only 6:30 am – 6 pm $30/day.

Why the Y for Before and After School Care? (Registration coming soon!)

When you enroll your child in our Before and After School program, you have the peace of mind knowing that your child will have the option of breakfast before school, will be walked to the bus stop and have a safe ride to school.  After school, we offer a snack, (included in the cost) homework time and STEM Activities.  On Wednesday’s when BPS is dismissed early, we offer swimming along with our regular activities. We also offer care on days that BPS doesn’t have school along with snow days.  Care is offered from 6:30 am – 6 pm.  For more information email Missy Lamkin at
